Hallelujah. Thank God that Mr Ching Khee was very patient when I was late . He sent me a map and called to ensure that I could join them at Alexander Arch. I was able to continue the walk and I didn’t missed any part of the walking tour at all. To see a rainbow. It reminds me Genesis 9: 13-16 God says ” I set My rainbow in the cloud, and it shall be for the sign of the covenant between Me and the earth. It shall be, when I bring a cloud over the earth, that the rainbow shall be seen in the cloud; and I will remember My covenant which is between Me and you and every living creature of all flesh; the waters shall never again become a flood to destroy all flesh. The rainbow shall be in the cloud, and I will look on it to remember the everlasting covenant between God and every living creature of all flesh that is on the earth.” The sweaty mask. However it is worth to explore and see the part of Singapore which I haven’t seen and to walk the trails. Thanks for the X -Trekkers sourvenir. appreciated 😊
